The well-known 'Reiterdenkmal' as it is named in German language, is often heard off as 'Reiter Monument' by the Anglophones, and is officially called the "Equestrian Statue" and generally referred to as the "Monument", has become from 25th December 2013 the theme of daily discussions in Namibia and abroad. This publication presents a chronology composed of newspaper articles, documents, reports, photographs, anecdotes, etc. It certainly does not intend to call for controversy. The contents portrays the demise of the Monument from the planning stage 108 years ago, its construction 97 years ago in 1912, up to its removal and relocation into the court yard of the Alte Feste on 25th December 2013 as well as the demolition of its foundations at the beginning of 2014. This chronology gives a time line for the various periods the Monument stood its ground as the country developed and changed.
